  1. Of course this signing is a gamble but only a financial 1. I was quite happy with Dowds and Kabia up front but we 100% needed another striker as neither Sammy or Wilson are good enough. We now have 3 decent options up front. What I will say tho is midfield still needs sorted out so if Griffiths signing has been at the expense of a proper box to box midfielder then I think we will have shot ourselves in the foot. If however we are still intending to strengthen midfield then I'm excited and optimistic we can reach the playoffs
  2. 3,5,2 could be an effective formation if we were a team full of confidence and everyone was match fit. Unfortunately we have 3 or 4 guys who haven't played alot of football lately and the team as a whole have no confidence and are scared so we are being overly cautious and dropping back 5-10 yards. We drop back to a 5,3,2 (as we should when we don't have ball) but because we are way too deep we can't get out so we struggle. Ordinarily I'd suggest we go back to basics and go 4,4,2 but the problem is we don't have good enough wide midfielders.
  3. Been a great deadline day even tho we haven't actually signed anyone. Ben Hall emptied and Rape Rovers sign Goodwillie. Plus given our market will be free transfers and loans, I've no doubt there will be some more faces coming in. Hopefully see 1 or 2 new signings this week now that other clubs higher up will have done their business
  4. Very pleased with the signings so far. It's been glaringly obvious Hall and McKay are not good enough so signing 3 centre half's should now mean they don't feature much again, if at all. We should def be looking to offload them this window. We still need cover at right back/right wing back however. I was kind of hoping any new defender signed would be able to play here too (Nielson would've been perfect signing) as would mean not having to play Miller here if Williamsons out. We also need at least 1 midfielder (so we don't need to play Hetherington) and another striker (as wilson and Omperon not good enough), but please not Goodwillie.
  5. I was in his youngest brothers year at school and HE was an Aberdeen supporter. There were however lots of Falkirk supporters in our year
  6. Thats a fair point and like I've said I'm hopeful it's just unsubstantiated lazy journalism, although it's more than 1 media source making the claim. However I've not said a thing about expecting the club to make an announcement on it. I have however stated my feelings on it as a supporter and father and have emailed the club aswell even if it turns out to be a sh*te non story. Nothing would surprise me anymore when it comes to Falkirk FC so I think it's important to make our feelings known. No point shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted
  7. I really really hope this is just a case of lazy journalism and there's no substance to these rumours. My daughter (10) and neice (6) both have steps with their names saying 'Proud To Be A Bairn' in the main stand. I also have 1 of the bricks outside which says 'U R My Falkirk'. If we sign that rapist I can hand on heart say I am done with this club and the only time I will ever set foot in the stadium again would be with a crowbar to remove those step plates. It no longer feels like my Falkirk
  8. As much as Jack Ross would be an amazing appointment, i think theres a lot of people here needing a massive dose of reality. It's all very well saying 'let's throw everything at him and make it happen' but we have to consider the possibility that if it all goes wrong (we are Falkirk after all), how would we be able to sever ties? He was possibly on at least 10 times what Sheerin was on so how could we afford to pay that off if it goes t*ts up? (Or even just a quarter of that amount for arguments sake). His compensation from Hibs might be a rolling payment aswell until he picks up a job somewhere else so joining us might cost him a huge sum too although we obv don't know the details. I just think we are forgetting the gulf between a club the size of Hibs and the money in the top league compared to where we find ourselves now and that's before we throw in the negative considerations HE would have such as the risk, our current reputation and that arsehole Holt.
  9. Really wish we would turn the audio off on the replays on ffctv
  10. Anyone else think the playoff final should just be a 1 off match at a neutral venue? The fact that every year there is fixture congestion and people missing out on tickets, surely we should follow the English leagues example of showcasing it at a bigger stadium and make it a proper final
  11. There's no denying McGinn has talent and def is 1 for the future but it's hard not to feel sorry for Arfield. Be good if they are both in the squad. Should have said a league with part time teams and not most weeks Come On Ye Bairns
  12. Speaking of former Bairns, I was thinking about Scott Arfield whilst watching the Hibs game today. The boy McGinn came on and it was mentioned he's in line for a scotland call up. Surely Arfield is further up the pecking order, fair enough there has possibly been better players keeping him out of previous squads but surely he can't be left out again when we are including a player who plays against part timers most weeks. No wonder he's talking about switching allegiance to Canada Come On Ye Bairns
  13. I wonder how Luke would do playing left side of midfield now. He's certainly improved as a player getting regular game time at left back but with left mid being his natural position when we signed him and the youngster Gallagher coming through, I think this could be a worth a look especially when the playoff spot becomes assured. Come On Ye Bairns
